Theme:  A Little Help From My Friends

Freud's Last Session

August 26 - September 18, 2016

by Mark St. Germain


FREUD'S LAST SESSION centers on legendary psychoanalyst Dr. Sigmund Freud who invites the young, rising Oxford Don C.S. Lewis to his home in London. On the day England enters World War Two, Freud and Lewis clash about love, sex, the existence of God, and the meaning of life, just weeks before Freud took his own life. FREUD'S LAST SESSION is a deeply touching play filled with humor and exploring the minds, hearts and souls of two brilliant men addressing the greatest questions of all time.

Little Shop of Horrors

October 7 - October 30, 2016

by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken


The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names "Audrey II" - after his coworker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down and out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it, BLOOD. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II's out of this world origins and intent towards global domination!



November 25 - December 18, 2016

Music, Lyrics and Book by Lionel Bart


In this jaunty adaptation of Dicken's dark classic, penniless orphan Oliver faces his nightmarish life with virtuous innocence. How can one small boy defy cruel taskmasters, abusive authority figures, thieving friends, and even a heartless murderer? You've got to buy a ticket or two!

The Odd Couple

January 27 - February 19, 2017

by Neil Simon


Two suddenly single pals, diometrically opposites, strain their friendship by turning roommates and unconsciously repeating the same mistakes they made in the marriages they just left. Alternating casts (one starring an odd female couple and one featuring a male couple) present this classic story of two mismatched friends. 


The Producers

March 17 - April 9, 2017

by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan, Music and lyrics by Mel. Brooks 


Bialystock and Bloom! Those names should strike terror and hysteria in anyone familiar with Mel Brooks' classic cult comedy film. Now as a big Broadway musical, The Producers once again sets the standard for modern, outrageous, in-your-face humor. It is a truly "boffo" hit, winning a record twelve Tony Awards.

Peter and the Starcatcher

April 28 - May 21, 2017

A play by Rick Elice, music by Wayne Barker, based on the novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson


Tony-winning Peter and the Starcatcher upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan). A wildly theatrical adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling novels, the play was conceived for the stage by directors Roger Rees and Alex Timbers and written by Rick Elice with music by Wayne Barker. From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores the depths of greed and despair and the bonds of friendship, duty, and love. 

The Elephant Man

June 9 - July 2, 2017

by Bernard Pomerance


John Merrick is a man living with horrifying, rare skin and bone diseases. Seen as a freak by society, his life changes when young physician Frederick Treves agrees to care for him. Merrick quickly becomes a favorite of the English aristocracy - an acceptance that comes with a heavy price. 

The Wizard of Oz

July 28 - August 13, 2017

by L. Frank Baum, music and lyrics Harold Arlen and E. Y. Harburg


We’re off to see the beloved musical, The Wizard of Oz!  Dorothy, desperately misunderstood by everyone and threatened by a “witchy” neighbor, tries to solve her problems by running away. Instead, she’s swept away by a tornado to a scary yet wonderful place where, accompanied by three trusted friends, she discovers that there’s no place like home.


And there’s no place like the Berry Center to see this cherished standard of American musical theatre!
